Archaeologists in Egypt have made a new tomb discovery — the final resting place of a high priest, untouched for 4,400 years, decorated with hieroglyphics. The secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Mostafa Waziri, described the find as “one of a kind in the last decades.”

Really cool stuff. Also though with the paint intact, I think it's all the more so interesting, when it comes to the hotly debated arguments over the years on what colour the Egyptians were. 

 

The best explanation is that they were a mixed race of people, Middle-Eastern and African, we see this in their wall art. But I think it's really fasciniating that you can see the original colours here on the statues, and they are depicted as black, and in really high detail. Other 2D drawings of course show this, along with some lighter skins, but it's cool to see fully formed statues with such colouration, as it really adds life to the models and how they were meant to be seen. It's so easy to forget that they were painted, and that how they are seen today is how they were seen back then.

 

But it makes me think of the more recent depictions in our books of the Egyptians being black when Moses and Aaron are confronting them.

The high priest “Wahtye” served during the Fifth Dynasty reign of King Neferirkare 

 

Is Wahtye the Egyptian word for Whitey? :whistling:

The high priest was devoted to his mother, evidence shows. “He mentions the name of his mother almost everywhere here,” said Waziri in an interview, pointing to the dozens of hieroglyphics, statues, and drawings.

 

Someone had mummy issues....:eek:
